GLENVILLE - A rental truck too tall for the Glenridge Road railroad bridge overpass slammed into it Tuesday, peeling the top off.

The incident happened before 9:30 a.m. on Glenridge Road, near Hetcheltown Road.

The Penske rental truck hit the overpass. A man and woman could be seen looking at the truck with officers at the scene. No injuries were reported.

Glenridge Road remained open throughout.

The bridge there has been struck multiple times by trucks, including last July.

The stretch was rebuilt about five years ago in a multiyear project that added the roundabout at Maple Avenue and Glenridge Road and widening a one-mile section of Glenridge Road from Maple Avenue to Route 146 to create 11-foot-wide travel lanes and 6-foot wide shoulders.

The work widened the roads under two bridges on Glenridge, but did not change their heights. The state considered raising the height of the bridges, but found it cost prohibitive, state officials have said.
